Y‘all know how I always say that the creation of a home is a slow process? We’ve lived in our home in Seattle for a little over 4 years now, and even though decor TV shows make us think entire houses are fully decorated in the span of one episode, we all know that for most of us it’s a gradual evolution! Gathering items here and there, working with what we already have, rearranging this and that, until we find the arrangements that feel just right. And then sometimes, we get new inspiration and decide to change it all up again! Or is that just how it goes for me? …Haha!

I love the process of creating a cozy sanctuary for my family and often that means simplifying!

This year I want to work on:

  • STREAMLINING our furniture
  • SIMPLIFYING what we have
  • ORGANIZING what we keep!

One of the first steps I’m taking this year is to consider how our rooms feel and function. To maximize smaller spaces like we have, it’s important to identify what’s serving us well and what furniture could be rearranged, pared down or replaced with something more attractive, functional or comfortable.

I have some ideas for what we need to do next (and have already begun a few projects that I can’t wait to show you!). Stay tuned for our updates, new projects and budget-friendly makeovers!

I thought I’d round up some of my favorite furniture finds from the World Market sale this week as well as share a few World Market furniture pieces my daughters and I have and love in our homes!

Do you have plans for simplifying and organizing your home this year? I’d love to hear about them!



    Love that desk! I have my eye on a leather chair at WM. Oh I hope it has dropped in price! Happy Monday Melissa. My boys left for school today so the house is really quiet! xo laura in CO

    I’ve been paring down for a while now. I spent time looking at how I wanted to use my rooms and how I live. This helped me determine what needed to stay or go. I love your daughter’s drop leaf table. I’m thinking of buying it but not installing the middle spindle so that I can use it for a coffee table. I’ll let you know if I do it, but am on a self inflicted buying freeze for January. Who knew this month was so long?!

    Spent all day in the laundry/mud room today organizing, letting go. and cleaning. Glorious fun! I loved every minute. We have lived here 3 years in July and I have been tweaking, adding, subtracting, as we go. Now it is all about beauty, functionality. and calm so that every space (even closets) make me smile. After 48 years of marriage we need to simplify to keep us sane! Tomorrow the kitchen. Hurray!
    Thanks for inspiring us again.

    Can’t wait for your next update! I’m thinking about decluttering my house and having less stuff to organize. So, I’m also looking to get rid of a lot of junk I don’t need anymore and hope your next update will offer some insights on the best ways and benefits of doing so
